Those of us who stayed up until Midnight on Monday to see Cult of Chucky on Netflix may not have gotten the complete experience. It’s being reported that the version made available on the streaming giant yesterday isn’t the unrated version, nor does it contain a pivotal post-credits scene. The bad news is: If you want to experience the Full Chucky, so to speak, you’ll have to purchase the film digitally or on Blu-ray/DVD. The good news is: The unrated Cult of Chucky is also available for purchase today.

Having seen Cult of Chucky on Netflix last night, I have to admit I’m a bit disappointed. While the gore was definitely hard-R, I would have preferred to experience the unrated version from the get-go. As a huge fan of the Child’s Play franchise, I have no problem making a financial contribution to the series; I just wish it had been made clear from the get-go.
If you haven’t seen Cult of Chucky for yourself yet, you can peep the trailer, review, and synopsis below.
Official Synopsis: “Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”
